Please cc any reply, I'm currently not subscribed to the mailing list.

I downloaded Hoary preview release and found at least one issue with
it. The acpi events regarding lid (on a HP-Compaq nx7000 notebook)
were causing me trouble. I found out after a simple search through the
scripts that switching console when the lid is closed, sometimes
didn't restore the settings.

In /etc/acpi/ you set the current console number and change to
console no. 12. When the lid is opened the last no. is restored. This
was problematic for me, for it didn't restore to the original console.

Personally, I don't see why this is being done. By default,
screensaver toggles and is imo sufficient for the behaviour wanted.

If I can be of any assistance, don't hesitate to reply.
